The Glass Menagerie
In Tennessee Williams’ shattering classic, an ageing Southern Belle longs for her youth and dreams of a better life for her children. Her restless son Tom – a would-be poet and the story’s narrator – gets swept up in his mother’s funny and heartbreaking schemes to find his painfully shy sister, Laura, a “gentleman caller”. When he does arrive, however, the gentleman caller sends shockwaves through the family and causes cracks to form in the delicate fantasies that have kept them going. This is the English Theatre‘s imaginative and intimate take on one of the most beautiful dramas in American theatre.
